West Ham fans are worried that Manuel Lanzini could be leaving the London Stadium in the near future due to the knock-on effect of Neymar’s mega-money move from Barcelona to Paris St. Germain.

Sky Sports have reported that the Brazilian international has agreed to sign a five-year deal with the Parisians ahead of what is due to be the most expensive transfer in football history.

Spanish news outlet Mundo Deportivo has said that Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has already agreed terms to join Barcelona, and West Ham fans are scared that Neymar’s move will see the Reds eye up their key man Lanzini as a replacement.

The Evening Standard has previously claimed that Liverpool are keen on signing Lanzini from the Hammers as a replacement for Coutinho, but the Irons are said to be desperate to hold on to their playmaker.

With the crazy amount of money that has been splashed around so far this summer, it could be hard for Slaven Bilic to ensure that the Argentine is still a member of his squad when the transfer window slams shut.

And that is a view that is shared by the West Ham supporters – with one fan saying that it would be a “huge step backwards” if that deal happened.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
